ARG?

Both the email sent out, and the blog post itself, explicitly use the words "rabbit hole". I think we might just have a Heroes ARG. YES. --Ricard Desi 18:19, 22 February 2010 (EST)

  • I'm so getting flamed for this... What's a Heroes ARG? --mc_hammark 18:26, 22 February 2010 (EST)

    • I Love Bees, the original ARG. I've actually built and run two ARGs in the past, it's a ton of fun, and some really cool things can come as a result. Generally, ARGs are used to advertise, but it can also be used to run contests and the like. If this is a Heroes ARG, then who plays and how well could actually impact the show. --Ricard Desi 19:13, 22 February 2010 (EST)
      • It would be cool if this were a true ARG...but the staff manning the Heroes content is so bare bones right now, I don't think it's going to happen. Even from Hiro's email and blog post, I got the sense that they were a week behind and were having a hard time catching up. I don't trust that this is going to be anything more than a fun blog, some emails, and perhaps a riddle or two, just like Hiro's blog. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:46, 22 February 2010 (EST)

Image of Chris Coolidge's 45

I think that the password for his Assignment Tracker profile is on it. It is located on the right and is: CChcg10kn--Icefire227 18:32, 2 March 2010 (EST)

  • If it is, it's not accessible yet, or by Bennet at all. I just tried and it didn't work, though good eye. I'll check it every couple of days in case they put it up. --mc_hammark 18:34, 2 March 2010 (EST)
    • That's the first thing I tried. It's gotta be something, but I'm not sure what. Why else would they 1) include an image like that, and 2) include what looks to be like a code on the image? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:58, 2 March 2010 (EST)

Tim

Tim Petrelli isn't the Arthur Petrelli's brother? TanderixUTCR 08:02, 11 March 2010 (EST)

  • I believe the last part of the puzzle is meant to spell "TMI". When one enters "Tim", the letters can still be altered. However, when "TMI" is typed, they can no longer be changed, which leads me to think that "TMI" is the correct answer. --Radicell 08:07, 11 March 2010 (EST)
    • "Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station (TMI) is a civilian nuclear power plant located on Three Mile Island in the Susquehanna River, in Londonderry Township, Dauphin County, south of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, United States. It has two separate generators, known as TMI-1 and TMI-2. The plant is best known for having been the site of the worst civilian nuclear accident in United States history on March 29, 1979, when TMI-2 suffered a partial meltdown. According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the accident resulted in no deaths or injuries to plant workers or members of nearby communities. The reactor core of TMI-2 has since been removed from the site, but the site has not been decommissioned.

Three Mile Island is so named because it is located three miles downriver from Middletown, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. The plant was originally built by General Public Utilities Corporation, later renamed GPU Incorporated. The plant was operated by Metropolitan Edison Company (Met-Ed), a subsidiary of the GPU Energy division. During 2001 GPU Inc. merged with FirstEnergy Corporation, through the selling of its outstanding common stock." -- Mike the Man-child!

  • That makes sense. I was just thinking of Tim Petrelli, not of an abbreviation. I'll update the page. By the way, TMI is about 20 minutes from my house. I could see it from the window of my old classroom. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:59, 13 March 2010 (EST)
    • So it's a nuclear power plant? --mc_hammark 19:00, 13 March 2010 (EST)
      • "In the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the island is the location of a secret holding facility for mutants undergoing experimentation, either in addition to or under the guise of a nuclear power plant (it is unclear in the film). During a battle among Wolverine, Sabertooth, and Deadpool, one of the cooling towers is destroyed."

Weapon XI was portrayed as a genetically altered Wade Wilson. Weapon XI is also referred to by Col. William Stryker as "Deadpool", due to having powers "pooled" from many other mutants killed and/or kidnapped, including Wolverine's healing factor, Cyclops' optic blasts, Wraith's teleportation ability, and Chris Bradley's technopathy. He also has retractable blades extending from his arms. Weapon-XI is the final antagonist, having been genetically altered to be the ultimate mutant killer. His head is cut off by Wolverine while his back is turned battling Sabretooth. In a post-credits scene of some prints, his body looks for and finds his head in the rubble, which returns to life. -- Mike the Man-child!
